KAREN HARTLEY-NAGLE HAS A PLAN

FOR NEW CASTLE COUNTY

RESTORE PUBLIC TRUST

REBUILD OUR ECONOMY

REPAIR COUNTY FINANCES

Restoring Public Trust is Job One.

Karen Hartley-Nagle knows that nothing in County government can get done as long as the people mistrust its leaders.  After years of government marred by scandals and allegations of corruption, Karen will create a government that is open, transparent, and accountable to the public.  She will immediately focus on rooting out unnecessary or wasteful spending, fraud and abuse.

Rebuilding Our Economy from the Middle Class Out.

Karen believes that an economy built to last starts with the middle class.  We’ve lost too many good middle-class jobs at companies like Dupont, Chemours, AstraZeneca, GM, Chrysler and the banking industry.  Karen will work for strong economic growth by encouraging both large and small businesses to locate here in New Castle County through smarter regulations and incentives geared toward job creation.

Repairing County Finances.

Our county has been spending at a frightening pace, and our pension reserve is vastly underfunded.  The county is on a path toward a lower bond rating, which would result in higher taxes and cutting services.  Karen Hartley-Nagle will not allow that to happen.  She will provide the leadership to turn around our deteriorating financial condition with aggressive oversight of budget spending.  Among candidates for Council President, only Karen has pledged to vote NO on raising taxes.

Repair County Finances.

Repairing County Finances.  Karen Hartley-Nagle is seeking this office to correct decisions that have left New Castle County in a most vulnerable financial situation.  Our County has been spending at a frightening pace, and our retirees' pension and healthcare funds are vastly underfunded. The County is on its way to spending down all the Available Financial Reserves and the resulting lower Bond Rating, which would result in higher taxes and cutting services.  

Karen Hartley-Nagle will not allow that to happen.  She will provide the leadership to turn around our deteriorating financial condition with aggressive oversight of budget spending.  Among candidates for Council President, only Karen has pledged to vote NO on raising taxes.


Review Public Safety.

Reviewing Public Safety.  Most people in the County don’t feel as safe as they did ten years ago. They perceive an alarming increase in robberies, burglaries and crimes against persons and property.  We need to do what is necessary in a coordinated effort to restore their confidence in the police’s ability to protect them.


The Importance of Information Technology

Today, NCC government publicizes it has 20some departments/services and 20some boards/commissions with all budgets approaching $350 Million. However, in all the County budgets, plans and boards/commissions there is virtually no disclosure or information of the "driver" for all of these essential services and operations.

This "driver" is INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY!


Responsible Use of Stingray Technology

Karen Hartley-Nagle, Candidate for President of New Castle County Council is urging Delaware’s lone Congressperson to co-sponsor U.S. House Bill (HR) 3871 which would limit the use of cell-phone site simulators by government agencies as well as state and local law enforcement unless they obtain a search warrant.


Addiction and Substance Abuse

"Drug and Alcohol addiction is a disease.  In New Castle County, we have an addiction epidemic that is hurting families and destroying communities.  It is not a problem to be hidden from public view and be must begin by discussing it openly". – Karen Hartley-Nagle


Woman's Rights

"Women’s issues are family issues, they are economic issues, they are safety issues, they are critical to our future, and our ability to compete in a global economy." - Karen Hartley-Nagle
